|Title:||Hoops for Heavenly Heroes Basketball Event|
|Description:||On Sunday, May 12, there will be a Hoops for Heavenly Heroes 3-on-3 Charity Basketball Tournament at Juniata College. We are extremely excited about this event and hope we can get as many kids and adults from as many local communities/counties as possible to participate.
Proceeds from the event will be given to two families from Huntingdon. The Huntingdon community and school district, as well as the Juniata College community, lost two very special individuals. Earlier this year, Peter Rubincam, a volunteer volleyball coach at Huntingdon Area Middle School lost a courageous battle with cancer. A few weeks ago, Dave Aurand, a former Huntingdon Area High School basketball player and a graduate of the class of 1977, as well as the equipment manager at Juniata College, passed away unexpectedly. Both of these gentlemen impacted the lives of many community members and athletes/coaches in the Huntingdon School District & Juniata College communities.
We would love to do all we can to give a little back to their respective families. Both of these men dedicated endless hours to work with and help many children, young adults, and student-athletes. They both were extremely
selfless, caring, and thoughtful individuals who gave of their time and never ever asked for anything in return. This is the time that we are looking to give a little back to them.
We also have invited members of Peter and Dave's family to attend this year's event. Let's do all we can to spread the word and to try and get as many people to participate.
This day is all for Peter and Dave!|
